law enforcement agency. here is how the homeland security chief talked about it earlier this year about the 77 centers around the country. >> it's the heart of our prevention strategy. how do we prevent a successful terrorist attack in the united states, looking at threats from abroad and threats from within. >> reporter: but the reality is according to the investigation, reports were often generated by violating civil liberties and misusing taxpayer funds by buying big screen tvs to monitor the channels. here is part of homeland's security's response. the committee report is out of date, inaccurate and misleading. in preparing the report the committee refused to review relevant data including relevant information pertinent to their findings. senator susan collins is concerned and said in a statement as responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars the dhs must insure that the dollars are spent in ways that enhance our security. the report says they often produced reports that were irrelevant or useless. jamie: both president obama and governor romney have a chance to recharge the race
solid government institutions and a judicial branch that treats all venezuelans equally under the law. he was elected to run against chavez after the venezuelan opposition forged an alliance in january. the 40-year-old candidate says he has visited more than 300 venezuelan towns during his campaign. he stepped on to the national scene during a 2002 riot at the cuban embassy in caracas. the chavez government accused him of insighting the riot and sentenced him to jail for four mis. the courts ended up acquitting him. >> you got this young 40-year-old, you know, he's healthy and strong, fit guy and hugo chavez who has been in power for a while. how do they weigh these two? is it a generational thing? how do they split this? >> it's a generational thing. chavez has been suffering from cancer. also just to give you and idea how uneven the playing field is in venezuela, just for the sake of a hypothetical scenario, imagine president obama has a national tv network paid for with public funds that he can use whenever he pleases to campaign. that's exactly what chavez has in venezuela. he has
are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus packages, but the cost of those policies as compared to romney's own perscriptions that call for smaller less expensive government. for the president what he's going to try to do is say look, maybe things aren't so great but it is partly the fault of george w. bush and the republicans who were in office prior to the democrats taking control in 2009, so we need time to fix it, and by the way, the president will also say that he wants to increase taxes on people like mitt romney to help pay down some of that debt. >> reporter: we just put of that graphic there showing the $16 trillion of debt and there are so many digits it almost doesn't fit on the tv screen across the screen there, as you can see. but haven't americans in some way become number to astronomical numbers? how serious is this in. >> they have become number. is it the new normal this massive spilling of red ink but it raises three problems which i don't think the nation has got even to grips with yet. number one our economy is smaller than our debt. we look like
showing deep discouragement in the meddle field in the wake of the president's health care law. according to a new survey by the physicians' foundation two years ago, more than 66% of doctors were somewhat positive about the medical practice while 33% held a negative view. but ask the same doctors how they feel today, and nearly 80% say they hold a negative view about the future of health care while just 23% are optimistic. the survey lends new credibility to illinois state senate candidate dr. barbara beller's speech that got some attention back in august. it has since gone viral. >> we're going to be gifted with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't which purportedly covers at least ten million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new irs agents written by committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by congress that didn't read it, but exempted themselves from it and signed by the president who smokes -- [laughter] [cheers and applause] with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxe
forgot. >> oh he did not forget it. he said how old are you? i said 24. just out of harvard law school, whatever. he lost me at harvard. am i right? >> you didn't get in neither? [laughter] i am saying he could certainly appreciate the similar upbringing in that respect but i hearken back to the same point. i think local politics and urban politics to me are the center of democracy. truly the greatest amount of opportunity is available there and i would love to hear other peoples comments on that but to me that is the importance of governance. >> so i guess i will pose one question to you and we have people ready to ask questions already. one of the things that you often hear millennials interacting with is media and technology and social media. we heard earlier today one of our expert said the social media sites are the village squares for civil discourse these days. so to hear from both of you how you are using media, social media and tech knowledge he. to relate and contact constituent. >> to some extent in my opinion sometimes if i don't post it on facebook is as if it didn't happ
for medicare in four or five years. the problem is medicare will be insolvent in 2016. under current law and will monti have solved until -- it will not be of solvent until 2014. i just talked about the need to cut spending. i support the affordable health care act. i liked the idea of the pre- existing conditions can no longer be cited as a reason not to underwrite some buddy. -- somebody. prescription drug has already got a benefit, but there are 120,000 in 2014. they get $3,000 each. they are making about $10 an hour. they are going to be able to buy health insurance. they will be more likely to hold their health care together and -- hold their family together. you will have a hard time finding anyone saying they are opposed because of the good it will do to our economy and our people. thus we do disagree, because the $700 million is a cut to those providers, and those providers have said they expected to make it up by the increase in patients that would be coming due to obamacare. we are going to see 23 million people that are going to lose their employer insurance because of the hea
's august primary, more than 133,000 people have registered. at nova's southeastern university law school in broward county. >> are you registered to vote? >> at florida atlantic university in boca raton -- >> are you registered to vote this year. >> reporter: outside the courthouse in plantation, no mistaking which candidate alan supports, but he says -- >> we register anyone that comes along that wants to register. >> reporter: you would prefer they register democrat. >> of course i work for the obama campaign. >> reporter: jonathan cologne registered. >> i'm looking in the future ten years down the line, whatever they can do to make their four years count is what i really want. >> reporter: with so much at stake in florida, there can be a darker side to voter registration. palm beach county supervisor of elections susan booker discovered discrepancies, signatures that looked the same, addresses that didn't appear right on more than 100 voter registration forms. >> we just haven't ever experienced this kind of issue with the registration forms and so that's got us a little disconcerted.
to an electoral scheme in arizona to allegedly violate election laws by running an independent expenditure campaign on behalf of an attorney general candidate there. i should point out that there have been no charges filed against mr. sproul or any of his companies, but they were concerned enough so that when sproul got hired in just this past june, he acknowledges that he set up a separate company under this name, strategic allied consulting, so that it wouldn't trace back to the other names that he's operated under, lincoln strategy group is the main one, and so it was clear that they were concerned, both he and the rnc, and he says, sproul told me that he did this at the request of the rnc. so there was clearly concern on both parties' part that some of these past controversies would get some attention if it was known that he was conducting this very major nationwide battleground registration effort on behalf of the rnc. >> because the rnc spends something like $3 million, they were operating in seven swing states. how wide do you expect this investigation to go? i mean, do you think th
. >> harvard law school versus harvard business school. >> looked like a guy that won the super bowl. >> he looked depressed. he looked anemic. those big ears poking out. he knew that anniversary or not michelle wanted to go home with mitt. >> zing. >> ouch. >> let's get right to our panel now. we're joined by dana mill bank of the "washington post," msnbc contributor, maria teresa kumar, and william cohen, a columnist for the bloomberg view. dana, i have to start with you. in your column today you write that his attacks on the president were respectful but defendant deft, referring to mr. romney. he joined obama deep in the weeds of policy and demonstrated a command of substance. now, dana, you know that i have nothing but a high regard for you, but how much of a command of substance is it for a man to disavow his own policies and not even know that there are 12 million unemployed in this nation and not 23 million? >> well, martin, it takes a real command of policy to be able to -- >> to lie? >> to manipulate it to your advantage. >> you're saying that his command of policies, just so i un

: the debate later turned to the president's health care law which romney says he will get rid of if elected. >> it cuts $716 billion from medicare to pay for it. i want to put that money back in medicare. it has killed jobs. >> reporter: but the president tried to bring it back to romney's own health care law which he says is quite similar. >> governor romney did a good thing working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model. it hasn't destroyed jobs. >> reporter: there were few fireworks and there were even fewer surprises. both candidates were deliberate going through their policy points. rob, paula, at times that made it seem look they were more concerned with getting through their checklist than really connecting with voters watching at home. >> all right, karen. a moment when they were talking what programs would be cut. all of a sudden you heard sesame street, big bird, big bird started trending. tell us what happened? >> oh, yeah, don't let your kids hear this one. big bird is apparently on the chopping block in a mitt romney budget. he said there

's a struggle for the dignity that comes with freedom and opportunity and the right to live under laws of our own making. it's a struggle that's been unfolded under green banners in the streets of iran, in the public squares of tunisia and egypt and yemen and in the fights for liberty in iraq and afghanistan and libya. and now in syria. in short, it's a struggle between liberty and tyranny, justice and oppression, hope and despa despair. we've seen this struggle before. it is familiar to general george marshall. in his time, actions of world war was torn between democracy and despotism. we had leaders of courage and vision, both republicans and democrats, who knew that america had to support friends who shared our values and prevent today's crisis of tomorrow's conflicts. statesmen like marshall rallied the nation to rise to the responsibilities as the leader of the free world. we helped our friends to build and sustain free societies and free markets. we defended the friends and ourselves from our common enemies. we led. we led and though the path was long and uncertain, the thought of war i

believe many some kind of shaara law and such? should we be supporting these groups more? i doubt that that is a place that conservatives would be comfortable, and romney, as a result, even there is a little bit vague other than saying that obama has done it wrong. he doesn't really tell us specifically what he would do. >> let's talk a little bit about iran. the "new york times" writes recently as august that despite increasingly painful sanctions and covert programs called olympic games that aimed to show the iranian program with cyber attacks, iran has enriched uranium from about one bomb's worth when mr. obama took office in 2009 to the ekwifl i want of about five bombs worth today. we recently saw the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu draw this red line a few weeks ago. is there any daytime between these two as to how tough they're going to get on iran? >> not really. look, the truth of the matter is it's important to understand that iran has a very extensive civilian nuclear program, and when you talk about one bombs worth or five bombs worth, this is not bombs. this
